Abbott and Costello

Abbott And Costello

William "Bud" Abbott and Lou Costello (born Louis Francis Cristillo), were an American comedy duo whose work in vaudeville and on stage, radio, film and television made them the most popular comedy team during the 1940s and 1950s. Their patter routine "Who's on First?" is considered one of the greatest comedy routines of all time, and set the framework for many of their best-known comedy bits.

Famous quotes containing the word abbott:

    It’s all sorts of middle-aged white men in suits—forests of middle-aged men in dark suits. All slightly red-faced from eating and drinking too much.
    —Diane Abbott (b. 1953)
